spgem saidDo u feel God played a cruel joke on u while He looked & shined down on others & blessed them with all the things u wish u had?! Do u feel like u were slighted & "gypped"? And however hard u try, u'll never match up to them cause God gave them a jumpstart in life? And u can't help but feel like a bitter sore loser because well---u just are? Do u feel u were gypped out of good looks & a rich lineage that would have enabled u to lead an easy happy-go-lucky fortunate life?.....
Sometimes I do feel envious of others, but I don't blame God, nor luck, or the persons themselves (unless they're criminals and their gains ill-gotten).
I wrote here a few weeks ago how much I envied our attorney, watching him take delivery on a $200,000 Aston Martin V-12 convertible. But then he's earned it, and my regret was that I hadn't. I didn't begrudge him his V-12, I just wish I had one, TOO. And reflected on what I should have done differently in life to have gotten one.
But God's doing, or Fate's? I don't see it that way. To borrow from Shakespeare's Julius Caesar
, when Cassius says, in jealousy of Caesar's great fame:"The fault, dear Brutus, is not in our stars, but in ourselves, that we are underlings."
